$1000 Gaming rig, will this work?

Hello, I'm looking foward to my first new build. I've been been using this site while doing my research and figured since this is where I obtained my knowledge I would let you critique my setup. I'm planning on purchasing these parts tomorrow and just wanted to make sure I haven't overlooked anything. I am not planning on overclocking at the moment but I would like to leave that option open. This is primarily for gaming.


Approximate Purchase Date: Tomorrow

Budget Range: $1000

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming and surfing the internet

Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS

Preferred Website for Parts: newegg.com

Country: United States

Parts Preferences:

Overclocking: Maybe in the future

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe in the future

Monitor Resolution: 1680x1050

  1. SLIng that 570 will require an 850W PSU.
  2. No plans for the second card right now but thanks for the advice, I will have to keep that in mind. That said, does everything look good with just the one card?

    Unless you plan on using that RAM for a hair comb, those tall heat spreaders are going to impede any decent size cpu heat sink. Low profile RAM.

    Wait until the GTX 660 is released in order to see those benchmarks before you pick up another 560. That card should go for $300 or less and it might be worth selling your 560 and picking up a 660. They are due out July/August.
  6. why me's build is perfect and change your 3770k to a 2500k. i7s arent needed for gaming
